When Trump Speaks People Get More Polarized, Poll Shows

"Almost two-thirds (64 percent) of those who believe the media favors a political party say it is the Democratic Party", the statisticians disclosed.

The poll found that American citizens will often formulate their opinions based on what Trump says, suggesting that the president's mere presence in public debates has further entrenched political divisions in the United States.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Republicans are fueling the belief that the news media favors Democrats: 88% of Republicans who believe the media is biased say this.

When told Trump was critical of American exceptionalism, the notion that the United States holds a special place in history and in world affairs, and that it's insulting to people from other countries, only 32 percent of Democrats agreed, while 46 percent of Republicans backed the president.

Elsewhere in his comments, Konashenkov said Washington was seeking to justify mass civilian casualties of its bombing campaign. Stephen Townsend, the senior USA commander in Iraq , said coalition forces "probably had a role in those casualties".

Which major political party tends to garner the most favor from the major news networks?

Another 18 percent of Democrats said they are "moderately proud" to be Americans, 9 percent are "only a little proud" and 5 percent are "not at all proud". The gap was smaller in 2003 and 1995, but was more similar to today's attitudes in 2000. Fifty-five percent of US adults say that news organizations' stories and reports are "often inaccurate".

"The majority of those surveyed also thought that news organizations often get the facts wrong", Townhall announced.

"In December 2000, when another controversial election made headlines, 65 percent said the media was often inaccurate", Gallup recounted.

Sprint Kills Its Oldest And Best 50 Percent Off Promotion
As all four major wireless carriers have begun offering unlimited data plans, Sprint has faced increased competition. For example, AT&T now offers its customers a $25 discount on DirecTV if they subscribe to its Unlimited Plus plan .

The number of Democrats who say they are "extremely" or "very" proud of their country has fallen significantly in the previous year, according to a new poll.

A recent nationwide survey divulged that more than six out of 10 of American adults believe there is partisan bias in the news media - a percentage that increased by double-digits over the past decade.

There's even worse news at a time when the media elites claim to rise above "fake news" emanating from Trump fans.

The belief that the media favors Democrats stems mostly from Republicans and may be the result of a continued animus between the two parties, as well as a tendency among conservatives to accuse the media of a liberal bias.
